UF Information Technology announced July 8 on Facebook that the password policy had changed, and it went into effect Monday. According to UFITs Password Complexity Standard Web page, passwords may include words with fewer than four characters. Passwords still must contain at least three of four characteristics: lowercase letters, uppercase letters, numerals or special characters. Carly Somers, a 21-year-old UF marketing senior, said shes never been concerned with her GatorLink account privacy. Its not like youre going to be able to guess someones password just because you can use dictionary words, considering how many words there are, she said. Somers said the policy will have positive results because students wont have to keep memorizing new passwords.

The tickets, which amount to $622,109, have accumulated since 2008, according to a city memo. From 2013, about $57,000 worth of parking tickets are still unpaid, according to the memo. All unpaid tickets issued prior to 2008 will be written off. Becky Rountree, city administrative services director, said the city is considering hiring a collection agency to take care of unpaid tickets, but its carefully considering what company to hire. Some [collection agencies] are very aggressive, she the work and have practices we are comfortable with. Part of the reason for the backlog of tickets is a breakdown in communication between the city and the Department of Motor Vehicles, Rountree said. Both agencies received technology upgrades, but they were unable to share information, resulting in a halt in the Now that both systems are working together again, Rountree said, letters are being sent out to notify those riod.

THURSDAY, JULY 18, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 UFS TEAM WON $3,000. ALEXA VOLLANDAlligator Staff Writeravolland@alligator.orgUFs robotic boat is a world champion. the International RoboBoat Competition last week. The engineering competition, hosted by the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International, was a six-day team challenge held in Virginia. Boats had to perform several tasks and overcome obstacles. The PropaGator displaced 115 pounds of water and was 72 inches by 30 inches by 28 inches. The team of UF students spent eight months and about 5,000 hours working on the boat, but team leader Andrew Gray said the stress was worth it. Everything we did was a little challenge in itself, said the 29-year-old electrical and computer engineering graduate student. The team had originally planned to enter a robotic lawn mower competition, but it had to switch gears to build a boat when the mower competition was canceled. We really had no experience going into this competition, Gray said. Because the boats are autonomous, Gray said where the boat goes is completely dependent on the computer programming not a remote control. Its like being a parent on the sidelines of a childs soccer game, Gray said once it was UFs team was awarded $3,000 for winning funding other projects and paying off debts from the competition. Eric Schwartz, associate director for UFs Machine Intelligence Lab and the teams faculty advisor, said the boat is worth between $14,000 and $15,000, but because the team used donated parts, Schwartz said, it spent about $6,000 on the boat for this competition. He said the skills students learn through projects like the boat that prepare them for their careers. What they learn they wont get in any other class; this is real engineering, he said. The classroom teaches you a bunch of fun facts, and in the labs you build on those facts. Theres no better way to learn material than to use it. What they learn they wont get in any other class; this is real engineering.Eric Schwartzassociate director for UFs Machine Intelligence Lab LESLIE WHEELERAlligator Contributing WriterRain may make people want to hide away, but for Gainesville pests, its the opposite. Small organisms will wither if conditions are dry, so rainfall indirectly allows them to be more active, John Capinera, chairman of UFs entomology and nematology department, wrote in an email. This is especially true with mosquitoes. Capinera said mosquitoes are the insects most affected by rain because the larvae need temporary water to live. The mosquito is considered the most dangerous animal in the world right now because they carry so many diseases, said Rebecca Baldwin, UF assistant professor and undergraduate coordinator in the entomology and nematology department. The West Nile virus, she said, is a common disease in Florida that mosquitoes transmit to humans. People should worry about mosquitoes carrying Encephalitis and Dengue, Associate Extension Scientist Jennifer Gillett-Kaufman said. She said the larvae look like worms and to check any standing water in the yard because thats where mosquitoes often breed. The best way to deal with mosquitoes, Capinera said, is to avoid them by not being outside during dusk their most active time. Homeowners, in addition to avoiding peak activity periods of mosquitoes, should make sure that they have window screens in place and they keep doors closed, Capinera said. Gillett-Kaufman said during rainy periods in Gainesville, people will see cockroaches and little white centipedes because it is more dry indoors, and there is usually food around for them to seek. The cleaner your house, GillettKaufman said, the better chance you have of keeping these pests out.Capinera

Darts & LaurelsNot long after his brothers not guilty verdict was announced, Robert Zimmerman Jr. held an interview on Piers Morgan Live. CNN anchor Don Lemon addressed Zimmerman with a question we all wanted to hear answered, and Zimmerman didnt fail to deliver. Much has been made about race in this particular case and you ... have a unique opportunity ... to address that. What would you like to see happen when it comes to race? Zimmermans response was I want to know if it is true ... that Trayvon Martin ... I want to know that every minor...that would be reaching out in someway for help ... that they have some kind of help. Its wasnt We assert that race had nothing to do with my brothers actions, and wed like to do our best to promote the safety of all children by advocating for the neighborhood watch. It was something more like what we expected his answer to be. For that, we give Robert Zimmerman Jr. this weeks DART. Along similar lines, Juror B37 was interviewed by Anderson Cooper recently. Cooper asked her Is George Zimmerman somebody you would like to have on a neighborhood watch in your community? Her response was If he didnt go too far. When Cooper pressed her, she conceded: I think he was frustrated...I would feel comfortable having George, but I think hes learned a good lesson. Thats scary. Depriving another human being of life unduly, especially in the case of killing a child with your own weapon, is not the kind of thing that merits a slap on the wrist. Legal questions aside, this cold and twisted way of thinking about the killing gets Juror B37 a not-on-my-watch DART. With so many disturbing examples being set right now, its comforting to know that there are youngsters like Temar Boggs and his friends working on our side. Last week Boggs and his sued the car of whom he suspected was the abductors. Eventually, child was released by the driver on the side of the road, where Boggs was able to get her to safety. Boggs said that what being-yourself LAUREL to Temar Boggs. Finally, the Alligator strives to be as thorough as possible in its reporting, which means including the one factor of events that organizations often dont want to disclose: the price. We always ask the cost, from how much the Accent Speakers Bureau charges, to how much more Bernie Machen got paid after his salary increases, to the cost of the Reitz Union renovations. And in response, weve heard it all before. We dont want to that information to stay private. We most recently experienced this with Student Government Productions, asking what SGP was paying Matt and Kim to play Swampfest. They refused to tell us. Heres the thing: SGP is funded by your money. We at the Alligator think students deserve to know how their money is being spent. Is it responsibly? Not to generalize, but if there has to be an excuse, probably not. So, we frustratedly throw a the-students-have-a-right-toknow DART to SGP and anyone else who refuses to disclose how its being used. 171 TOTAL VOTES61% YES 39% NOVote or post a message at www.alligator.orgTuesdays question: Do you agree with the Zimmerman verdict? Todays question: Are you glad the Dove World Outreach Center is leaving Gainesville? Social media killed the mystery of starsIn recent years, the use of social media outlets by celebevery big name in the professional sports and entertainment has a Twitter account. The age of formal press releases through a spokesperson is being taken over by 140 character or fewer statements via a celebritys Twitter feed. Celebrities can now talk to their fans without even getting out of bed. Regardless of where they are the locker room, the VIP lives of our favorite stars. This unlimited access to a public forum has gotten countless celebrities into trouble. Through various offcolor posts, we have found out many famous people have no place speaking to millions regardless of the medium. But, aside from the trouble celebrities have gotten into as a result of social media, I believe social networks, particularly Twitter, have ruined the celebrity mystique. We have gotten so used to seeing the day-to-day lives of our favorite celebs played out via social media that we were about as reachable as the stars in the sky. But thanks to social media, celebrities arent stars anymore; theyre more like birds. Sure, they can still soar to places out of our reach, but they can also crash into your ously resembled human versions of the celestial bodies they are named for are now throwing themselves at us whether we want them to or not and personally I dont want it. Growing up, I was a huge Michael Jordan fan. I remember a poster I had hanging in my room that had Jordan soaring over the Earth for a slam dunk. That poster epitomized what I thought about Michael Jordan at that time out of this world. As far as I was concerned, he was prior to the age of social media. Jordan wasnt posting Instagram pictures poppin bottles at the club after winning championships. He wasnt tweeting about watching Shark Week on the Discovery Channel. No one really knew what Jordan did in his spare time. I personally like to think he slept in a hyperbaric chamber and watched nothing and occasionally Space Jam. The private lives of superstars were for us to ponder about. Today, the most accomplished and comparable NBA player to Michael Jordan is Kobe Bryant. Bryant was late tique Jordan held as an unattainable celestial body. Within mystique. Former Los Angeles Lakers teammate of Brythe Houston Rockets on July 8. That very same day, Bryant unfollowed Howard on Twitter. The pettiness displayed by the 34-year-old Bryant makes him appear more like a superstar. This access to off-the-court behavior is the kind of thing that we were not privy to before Twitter. Social media has humanized celebrities to the point that, for the most part, we now know that they are reThey watch Shark Week in their socks and sleep in beds, were private.

THURSDAY, JULY 18, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7The Onion, a satirical news network, produced a parody of TED Talks titled Using Social Media To Cover For Lack Of Original Thought. In the video, snapshot of Cheetos Facebook page. Any teenager could have done what we did for no money and much faster, he says smugly, implying that his advertising team created the page. ...In the new social media economy, you just have to look like youre doing work, and people will pay you for it. The satire is a bit harsh, but it highlights a real issue: Some professionals see websites like Facebook as a cureall because theyre trendy, cheap and easy to use. Now that UF has introduced an online masters degree in Sophrase. First, what does social mean? For the purposes of a communications campaign, the word should apply to all media that inspires audiences to congregate, share ideas and take action. Film screenings and live performances are less sexy than Twitter, but they can be more engaging. The Bridge Project, a fundraising campaign sponsored by Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, courted donors with personal events and movies. I edited a documentary and mailed DVDs to the prospects instead of using YouTube. Without Web-based tactics, the project raised several million dollars for cancer research. high-tech gadgets. Breakfast, a New York-based design agency, uses robotics to connect the virtual and physical worlds. To promote major gallery openings, the agency built iPad-controlled blimps that broadcast live video among crowds in different rooms. With so many exciting social tools at their disposal, how should communicators decide which to employ? Great campaigns tend to base the decision on audience research rather than technology trends. For example, the Bridge Project chose personal events because its audience To be fair, websites offer instant statistics that may be helpful to you, depending on your major. If youre a journalism student whose mission is to inform, likes and page views may prove youve succeeded. For public relations majors, the stats tell an incomplete story. A PR campaign must persuade audiences to act for a cause, whether its quitting cigarettes, getting an HIV/ AIDS test or buying stock in a company. Because raisextra research to prove likes and tweets translate into a measurable impact on peoples behavior. Research-backed websites can be wonderful tools Northwest developed www.wheredidyouwearit.com an interactive map that lets users describe where they had sex and how it felt to promote condom use. As of July 16, about 20 people had reported wearing condoms on or near the UF campus. Building a custom site is generally better than anchoring a campaign around Facebook. You can always hire a nerd who knows how to program or simply use a content management system. As a programmer OK, a nerd I appreciate having greater control over a sites design and behind-the-scenes code. Facebook intentionally limits your reach to make you pay for greater exposure. While Reddits news-sorting algorithm is open to the public, Facebooks code is proprietary, meaning its harder to predict how posts will be ranked. Plus, the last time I checked, Facebook doesnt offer condom-shaped buttons a must-have for every campaign. Despite The Onions parody, I dont think social media are inherently silly or useless, but social media, the phrase, is desperately lacking. Communicators should their disposal, then let audience research dictate the medium. Cody Romano is a UF public relations senior. His columns appear Thursdays. Cody Romanoopinions@alligator.org

PATRICIA BUTLERAvenue Writer If youre the type who likes half-naked models strutting their stuff down a runway, then keep your calendars open Saturday evening. Gainesville Fashion Week will host a poolside cocktail party with one of the hottest runway shows of the summer. The action will be at The Enclave Apartments, 3000 SW 35th Place. The doors open at 6 p.m., and the show goes from 7-10 p.m. GFW has done swimwear fashion shows during the spring in the past, a summer show, executive producer Albey Coronel said. The show will have 22 models walking down the runway: 13 women and nine men. If youve been to GFW events before, youll be surprised by all the new faces youll see. About two-thirds of the models are new that we recently found in the casting call, Coronel said. Jennifer Cowie, the marketing manager for The Collier Companies, said The Enclave is doing this event to promote its name and show people how great it is to live in a luxury apartment. A partnership with GFW made sense because this is an elite fashion show, Cowie said. Were looking to get on the map with an event that will gain popularity in the community. clave is hosting an event like this as well, and it is planning to continue doing bigger things in the community, Cowie said. The Enclaves catchphrase is DeGFW show is showing that this really is the good life, Cowie said. Food and beverages will be served at this free event sponsored by www. ApartmentsInGainesville.com. Those who are 21 and older will have the option to purchase alcoholic beverages at the bar, GFW intern Niko Pifferetti said. Guests should wear casual-cocktail attire, but be sure to dress wisely because its going to be hot! Because Florida weather tends to give us whiplash, if it rains, the fun will still continue at The Enclave basketball courts which are fully covered. Were super excited about the show, Coronel said.

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JULY 18, 2013 SHOP IS OPEN DAILY. OLIVIA LANGDONAvenue WriterWolfgang fashion clothing store off University Avenue has long forgone paper advertising after it saw little return for sales during the year of its establishment in 2007. The shop has decided to launch an online store due to increasing sales generated from strong social media marketing. Matthew Turner, store owner, said social media proves the best way to get people in. Through constant Facebook photo updates, statuses announcing new clothing shipments and 20 percent off offers available via Facebook check in, Wolfgang has joined topselling retailers in brand advocacy through social media marketing. The Wall Street Journal online recently featured a story on this emerging social media marketing technique, which has allowed retailers to build a more intimate relationship with its current and potential buyers. Starting an original brand hashtag on Twitter and Instagram, these retailers are asking the everyday consumer to upload his or her own photo wearing the companys brand. It is the comment card ... brought to life in social media, said Bruce Floyd, UFs social media specialist. Since social media platforms began, people have been sharing their opinions about products. Those opinions can manifest itself in words in images, Floyd said. Now the opportunity is apparent for a clothing company or a designer. Customers take photos of themselves in the dressing room or wearing the brands clothes and tag the Wolfgang with the photo, which then appears in the clothing stores tagged pictures. It encourages people to be excited about something they get from here, Turner said. Rather than displaying models sporting a companys apparel, social media is allowing people to post, hashtag and upload personal photos simply because they are happy with the retailers product. According to Floyd, this allows all businesses to essentially crowdsource content that they are not even asking for. Retailers are saving money by utilizing social media as a method to advertise through the average person. Floyd said this technique spurs creativity allowing regular people who are fashionistas in their own sense to share with others how This would provide invaluable market research to the business as well.

Visit http://mediocreadvicegators. tumblr.com/ask Dear Mediocre Advice, Dear Friend, your partners b-hole and getting poop on yourself. Regret is how you learn lessons. There is only one feeling when you drink 20 beers and have explosive diarrhea the next morning. Youre not whispering, no regrets as you cling to the toilet; youre whispering, Jesus, take the wheel. Not regretting something is like refusing to admit you were wrong. It makes you look careless and means you probably dont have a lot of responsibilities in life. I can think of a lot of things that would require me to consume a bottle of tequila to wash away the stain of regret. Ariel Barnes Dear Mediocre Advice, Dear Friend, Avoid 9/11 jokes, crying, pretending your dick is a windmill or tucking it in like Buffalo Bill, anything that would make your partner feel like a pedophile and asking, Want to smell something weird? Dear Mediocre Advice, Dear Friend, When it is not socially acceptable to fart, you need to clench those butt cheeks. This may occur when youre talking to your boss or running past someone you actually need to impress, like an in-law. Much like suppressing a sneeze, the fart youre trying to terminate is just going to come back twice as loud. It slowly travels to limbo a place between your ass and your belly button. Just when you think it somehow disappeared like you have the power to make things inside of your body vanish it comes back hard like a rollercoaster on steroids. If youre surrounded by people, you should call out your own fart like calling island in a game of beer pong. If its intentional, then its not as embarrassing; just know that people are still going to laugh. Dear Mediocre Advice, Dear Friend, Cuddling, spooning and all that cute sh-t cant always work out. Its not actually comfortable to hold your partner all night because youre going to wake up feeling like an amputee. If it is impossible to sleep next to your boyfriend, sleep apart. Sleep is valuable as an adult, and if your dick boyfriend is going to act like hes at a party in bed just because he sleeps that way, head to the couch. When the morning comes, return for morning sex, but trust me, not cuddling and sweating on each other all night wont damage your relationship itll probably save it.

THURSDAY, JULY 18, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 11 THE HIPP IS LOCATED AT 25 SE SECOND PLACE. SHANEECE DIXONAvenue WriterDespite the summer being more than halfway over, there is still plenty of time to catch some of the Hippodrome State Theatres best movies and stage productions during Summer B. As somewhat of a landmark in downtown Gainesville, the Hipp productions as well. Nancy, Please, which premiered Friday, focuses on the story of Paul Brawley, a young Ph.D. candidate at Yale University. He moved into an apartment with his girlfriend, Jen, and now he needs to complete his dissertation or risk withdrawal from the doctoral program. However, he left behind something of importance at his old home that stands in the way One thing becomes an obstacle between Paul and this item, though: his ominous ex-roommate, Nancy. I thought Nancy, Please was an excellent thriller that kept me on the edge of my seat, wondering what would happen next, wrote Alisha Kinman, the cinema director for the Hippodrome in an email. Nancy is unusual to been brought to the Hippodrome. Typically, thrillers have not been catered to. Exposing the works of young, new directors, writers and actors/actresses is very important to the Hippodrome. Following in the footsteps of many theatre companies, the Hipp offers its adaptation of the much-loved Broadway production, Avenue Q. Inspired by beloved childrens show Sesame Street, the production addresses various issues associated with the beginnings of adulthood. The characters remark on how their parents and shows like Sesame Street taught them that they are special and can do anything. Taking place in New York City, humans and puppet characters interact with one another as they embark on this adult-themed version of Sesame Street, covering issues such as racism, homosexuality and pornography. I would expect to see some of the funny truths in our society, said Joel Oramas, who plays Trekkie Monster in the Hipps production of the play. Things that people deem as offensive or taken as some sort of taboo its okay to laugh at those things. Avenue Q shows will be playing the rest of this week and until July 28. Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, The Kings of Summer, opening July 26, is another coming-of-age comedy about three teenage friends: Joe, Patrick and the unpredictable Biaggio, who seek to assert their independence and spend their summer building a house in the woods to live far from their parents rules. Over time, their vacation becomes a true test of friendship as each boy learns to appreciate that family is something you cant run away from. Also opening July 26 is the contemporary vampire thriller, Byzantium, directed by Neil Jordan (Interview with the Vampire, The on Eleanor and her guardian, Clara, as they attempt to assimilate into human society and deal with the downsides of eternal life. Clara meets Noel, the lonely owner of a deserted guesthouse, Byzantium. Meanwhile, Eleanor becomes close friends with Frank and tells him a dark secret between her and Clara they were born 200 years ago and travel the world, surviving on human blood. As the truth of their past spreads, it catches up to them with severe consequences. As part of a 32-city movie tour, the Hippodrome will also have a of American Made Movie Aug. 4. Many of the worlds most successful companies have engaged in offshoring practices to stay competitive in the business markets. This movie focuses on innovative companies that continue to thrive with American-made products. impact of domestic manufacturing jobs on national and local economies in the face of economic obstacles.

SHANEECE DIXONAvenue WriterMary Glazer would be a perfect choice for any aspiring writer to get advice from. Her work has already been published in several issues of Florida Gardening magazine. Now, she is the Gulf states regional writer for Lowes Creative Ideas online gardening magazine. But if you ask her, shes not a writer at all. I dont consider myself to be a writer because grammar and punctuation is something I struggle with and does not come naturally to me, Glazer said. I am more comfortable with a verbal presentation, where I dont have to consider where all But the Writers Alliance of Gainesville thought differently. About 30 people sang and laughed as they listened to stories and tips based on Glazers ganization hosted its July seminar series, A Freelance Writers Maiden Voyage, at the Millhopper branch library on Sunday. The Writers Alliance of Gainesville is a nonsupports aspiring and experienced regional writers. Members can participate in monthly meetpublic readings and collaborations with schools and civic organizations to foster creative expression through the written word. Members also have the opportunity to have their work published in the Bacopa Literary Journal, which is free for group members. Glazer, a former member of the alliance, is now a writer reer. With this new experience, she found skills that could also help other group members in their creative writing. writing for Lowes. That really took a lot of pressure off of me. Anytime Ive written for Florida Gardening, I pitched articles, and to no surprise, many of my ideas were turned down. In her Five Tips to Sail presentation, Glazer talked about the importance of using outlines to start a piece and never starting a new chapter with a blank paper. She said that in past experience, she was not used to someone giving her deadlines for her to balance her work for Lowes while attending UF to pursue studies in ornamental horticulture. My editor had asked me, Can you write an article a week until I get you caught up with the other nine writers in the country? and I said Sure. Because what are you going to say when you have a full opportunity land in your lap? I have a huge stack of schoolwork from UF and I thought, No. This aint going to happen. But Glazer did make Lowes her top priority and said despite some mistakes shes made, it always helped her to have someone else look over her work. She encouraged attendees to get feedback on their work from someone else. Much of what Glazer said was very informative for several audience members, including potential alliance member Terri Regotti. I thought the meeting was great, and I really enjoyed listening to Mary, said Regotti, who likes haps, in what Im working on writing, I need to consider not naming real names. When Glazer is not writing gardening pieces for Lowes, she is working on a medical memoir but enjoys writing about plants, people and nature.

Yeezus is beyond much modern day hip-hop and even Wests prior albums. The lyrics and sounds are almost a cacophony an appealing one, if at all possible. Its a little less lyrically cohesive and meaty but a lot more minimalistic. Just take a look at the cover art alone. Its really all Kanye. Completely raw, at times uneasy to listen to, yet always adventurous. But of course, it wouldnt be Kanye if there wasnt any controversy. West took some heat from the American Parkinsons Disease Association when the lyrics from one of the tracks on his new album, On Sight, took on stigmas surrounding Parkinsons disease, most notably through the lines soon as I pull up and park the Benz/we get this b---shaking like Parkinsons. The group deemed the lyrics distasteful and a product of obvious ignorance. Comments from the West camp regarding this ordeal have yet to materialize. Wests new album has also inspired some religious stirrings among critics who deem the title blasphemous as West continues the theme of religion and hip-hop thats pervaded his career. Many though, like associate professor at California State University Long Beach Ebony A. Utley, Ph.D., dont think the album is blasphemous. In fact, she thinks the exact opposite: Oppressed people, including many rappers, have sus, who was misunderstood much like they are, Utley said in her blog post regarding the album. Although a risky metaphor, West juxtaposes himself with Jesus without any less reously reveres. At the end of the day, West answers to no one but himself, which is exactly what Yeezus epitomizes. The album transcends the melodic The College Dropout, and the collaborative power of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Love him or hate him, theres something about this album and even his previous ones that is just pure musical viscera.Kanye Wests Yeezus evokes controversy best of blogs A Freelance Writers Maiden Voyage guides aspiring writers I dont consider myself to be a writer because grammar and punctuation is something I struggle with and does not come naturally to me.Mary GlazerLowes creative ideas online

ROSANNA DEL CIOPPOAlligator Contributing WriterGatorLink passwords can now include dictionary words and are valid for a longer period. UF Information Technology announced July 8 on Facebook that the password policy had changed, and it went into effect Monday. According to UFITs Password Complexity Standard Web page, passwords may include words with fewer than four characters. Passwords still must contain at least three of four characteristics: lowercase letters, uppercase letters, numerals or special characters. Carly Somers, a 21-year-old UF marketing senior, said shes never been concerned with her GatorLink account privacy. Its not like youre going to be able to guess someones password just because you can use dictionary words, considering how many words there are, she said. Somers said the policy will have positive results because students wont have to keep memorizing new passwords. Adrian Diaz, a 20-year-old UF aerospace engineering junior, said allowing dictionary words will save students time. It took me 10 minutes to come he said.

The tickets, which amount to $622,109, have accumulated since 2008, according to a city memo. From 2013, about $57,000 worth of parking tickets are still unpaid, according to the memo. All unpaid tickets issued prior to 2008 will be written off. Becky Rountree, city administrative services director, said the city is considering hiring a collection agency to take care of unpaid tickets, but its carefully considering what company to hire. Some [collection agencies] are very aggressive, she the work and have practices we are comfortable with. Part of the reason for the backlog of tickets is a breakdown in communication between the city and the Department of Motor Vehicles, Rountree said. Both agencies received technology upgrades, but they were unable to share information, resulting in a halt in the Now that both systems are working together again, Rountree said, letters are being sent out to notify those riod. Typically, Rountree said, if a ticket is unpaid after 72 hours of being issued, the penalty rises. After a month, the city sends out a reminder.

THURSDAY, JULY 18, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 UFS TEAM WON $3,000. ALEXA VOLLANDAlligator Staff Writeravolland@alligator.orgUFs robotic boat is a world champion. the International RoboBoat Competition last week. The engineering competition, hosted by the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International, was a six-day team challenge held in Virginia. Boats had to perform several tasks and overcome obstacles. The PropaGator displaced 115 pounds of water and was 72 inches by 30 inches by 28 inches. The team of UF students spent eight months and about 5,000 hours working on the boat, but team leader Andrew Gray said the stress was worth it. Everything we did was a little challenge in itself, said the 29-year-old electrical and computer engineering graduate student. The team had originally planned to enter a robotic lawn mower competition, but it had to switch gears to build a boat when the mower competition was canceled. We really had no experience going into this competition, Gray said. Because the boats are autonomous, Gray said where the boat goes is completely dependent on the computer programming not a remote control. Its like being a parent on the sidelines of a childs soccer game, Gray said once it was UFs team was awarded $3,000 for winning funding other projects and paying off debts from the competition. Eric Schwartz, associate director for UFs Machine Intelligence Lab and the teams faculty advisor, said the boat is worth between $14,000 and $15,000, but because the team used donated parts, Schwartz said, it spent about $6,000 on the boat for this competition. He said the skills students learn through projects like the boat that prepare them for their careers. What they learn they wont get in any other class; this is real engineering, he said. The classroom teaches you a bunch of fun facts, and in the labs you build on those facts. Theres no better way to learn material than to use it. What they learn they wont get in any other class; this is real engineering.Eric Schwartzassociate director for UFs Machine Intelligence Lab LESLIE WHEELERAlligator Contributing WriterRain may make people want to hide away, but for Gainesville pests, its the opposite. Small organisms will wither if conditions are dry, so rainfall indirectly allows them to be more active, John Capinera, chairman of UFs entomology and nematology department, wrote in an email. This is especially true with mosquitoes. Capinera said mosquitoes are the insects most affected by rain because the larvae need temporary water to live. The mosquito is considered the most dangerous animal in the world right now because they carry so many diseases, said Rebecca Baldwin, UF assistant professor and undergraduate coordinator in the entomology and nematology department. The West Nile virus, she said, is a common disease in Florida that mosquitoes transmit to humans. People should worry about mosquitoes carrying Encephalitis and Dengue, Associate Extension Scientist Jennifer Gillett-Kaufman said. She said the larvae look like worms and to check any standing water in the yard because thats where mosquitoes often breed. The best way to deal with mosquitoes, Capinera said, is to avoid them by not being outside during dusk their most active time. Homeowners, in addition to avoiding peak activity periods of mosquitoes, should make sure that they have window screens in place and they keep doors closed, Capinera said. Gillett-Kaufman said during rainy periods in Gainesville, people will see cockroaches and little white centipedes because it is more dry indoors, and there is usually food around for them to seek. The cleaner your house, GillettKaufman said, the better chance you have of keeping these pests out.Capinera

Darts & LaurelsNot long after his brothers not guilty verdict was announced, Robert Zimmerman Jr. held an interview on Piers Morgan Live. CNN anchor Don Lemon addressed Zimmerman with a question we all wanted to hear answered, and Zimmerman didnt fail to deliver. Much has been made about race in this particular case and you ... have a unique opportunity ... to address that. What would you like to see happen when it comes to race? Zimmermans response was I want to know if it is true ... that Trayvon Martin ... I want to know that every minor...that would be reaching out in someway for help ... that they have some kind of help. Its wasnt We assert that race had nothing to do with my brothers actions, and wed like to do our best to promote the safety of all children by advocating for the neighborhood watch. It was something more like what we expected his answer to be. For that, we give Robert Zimmerman Jr. this weeks DART. Along similar lines, Juror B37 was interviewed by Anderson Cooper recently. Cooper asked her Is George Zimmerman somebody you would like to have on a neighborhood watch in your community? Her response was If he didnt go too far. When Cooper pressed her, she conceded: I think he was frustrated...I would feel comfortable having George, but I think hes learned a good lesson. Thats scary. Depriving another human being of life unduly, especially in the case of killing a child with your own weapon, is not the kind of thing that merits a slap on the wrist. Legal questions aside, this cold and twisted way of thinking about the killing gets Juror B37 a not-on-my-watch DART. With so many disturbing examples being set right now, its comforting to know that there are youngsters like Temar Boggs and his friends working on our side. Last week Boggs and his sued the car of whom he suspected was the abductors. Eventually, child was released by the driver on the side of the road, where Boggs was able to get her to safety. Boggs said that what being-yourself LAUREL to Temar Boggs. Finally, the Alligator strives to be as thorough as possible in its reporting, which means including the one factor of events that organizations often dont want to disclose: the price.

We most recently experienced this with Student Government Productions, asking what SGP was paying Matt and Kim to play Swampfest. They refused to tell us. Heres the thing: SGP is funded by your money. We at the Alligator think students deserve to know how their money is being spent. Is it responsibly? Not to generalize, but if there has to be an excuse, probably not.

Todays question: Are you glad the Dove World Outreach Center is leaving Gainesville? Social media killed the mystery of starsIn recent years, the use of social media outlets by celebevery big name in the professional sports and entertainment has a Twitter account. The age of formal press releases through a spokesperson is being taken over by 140 character or fewer statements via a celebritys Twitter feed. Celebrities can now talk to their fans without even getting out of bed. Regardless of where they are the locker room, the VIP lives of our favorite stars. This unlimited access to a public forum has gotten countless celebrities into trouble. Through various offcolor posts, we have found out many famous people have no place speaking to millions regardless of the medium. But, aside from the trouble celebrities have gotten into as a result of social media, I believe social networks, particularly Twitter, have ruined the celebrity mystique. We have gotten so used to seeing the day-to-day lives of our favorite celebs played out via social media that we were about as reachable as the stars in the sky. But thanks to social media, celebrities arent stars anymore; theyre more like birds. Sure, they can still soar to places out of our reach, but they can also crash into your ously resembled human versions of the celestial bodies they are named for are now throwing themselves at us whether we want them to or not and personally I dont want it. Growing up, I was a huge Michael Jordan fan. I remember a poster I had hanging in my room that had Jordan soaring over the Earth for a slam dunk. That poster epitomized what I thought about Michael Jordan at that time out of this world. As far as I was concerned, he was prior to the age of social media. Jordan wasnt posting Instagram pictures poppin bottles at the club after winning championships. He wasnt tweeting about watching Shark Week on the Discovery Channel. No one really knew what Jordan did in his spare time. I personally like to think he slept in a hyperbaric chamber and watched nothing and occasionally Space Jam. The private lives of superstars were for us to ponder about. Today, the most accomplished and comparable NBA player to Michael Jordan is Kobe Bryant. Bryant was late tique Jordan held as an unattainable celestial body. Within mystique. Former Los Angeles Lakers teammate of Brythe Houston Rockets on July 8. That very same day, Bryant unfollowed Howard on Twitter. The pettiness displayed by the 34-year-old Bryant makes him appear more like a superstar. This access to off-the-court behavior is the kind of thing that we were not privy to before Twitter. Social media has humanized celebrities to the point that, for the most part, we now know that they are reThey watch Shark Week in their socks and sleep in beds, were private.

THURSDAY, JULY 18, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7The Onion, a satirical news network, produced a parody of TED Talks titled Using Social Media To Cover For Lack Of Original Thought. In the video, snapshot of Cheetos Facebook page. Any teenager could have done what we did for no money and much faster, he says smugly, implying that his advertising team created the page. ...In the new social media economy, you just have to look like youre doing work, and people will pay you for it. The satire is a bit harsh, but it highlights a real issue: Some professionals see websites like Facebook as a cureall because theyre trendy, cheap and easy to use. Now that UF has introduced an online masters degree in Sophrase. First, what does social mean? For the purposes of a communications campaign, the word should apply to all media that inspires audiences to congregate, share ideas and take action. Film screenings and live performances are less sexy than Twitter, but they can be more engaging. The Bridge Project, a fundraising campaign sponsored by Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, courted donors with personal events and movies. I edited a documentary and mailed DVDs to the prospects instead of using YouTube. Without Web-based tactics, the project raised several million dollars for cancer research. high-tech gadgets. Breakfast, a New York-based design agency, uses robotics to connect the virtual and physical worlds. To promote major gallery openings, the agency built iPad-controlled blimps that broadcast live video among crowds in different rooms. With so many exciting social tools at their disposal, how should communicators decide which to employ? Great campaigns tend to base the decision on audience research rather than technology trends. For example, the Bridge Project chose personal events because its audience To be fair, websites offer instant statistics that may be helpful to you, depending on your major. If youre a journalism student whose mission is to inform, likes and page views may prove youve succeeded. For public relations majors, the stats tell an incomplete story. A PR campaign must persuade audiences to act for a cause, whether its quitting cigarettes, getting an HIV/ AIDS test or buying stock in a company. Because raisextra research to prove likes and tweets translate into a measurable impact on peoples behavior. Research-backed websites can be wonderful tools Northwest developed www.wheredidyouwearit.com an interactive map that lets users describe where they had sex and how it felt to promote condom use. As of July 16, about 20 people had reported wearing condoms on or near the UF campus. Building a custom site is generally better than anchoring a campaign around Facebook. You can always hire a nerd who knows how to program or simply use a content management system. As a programmer OK, a nerd I appreciate having greater control over a sites design and behind-the-scenes code. Facebook intentionally limits your reach to make you pay for greater exposure. While Reddits news-sorting algorithm is open to the public, Facebooks code is proprietary, meaning its harder to predict how posts will be ranked. Plus, the last time I checked, Facebook doesnt offer condom-shaped buttons a must-have for every campaign. Despite The Onions parody, I dont think social media are inherently silly or useless, but social media, the phrase, is desperately lacking. Communicators should their disposal, then let audience research dictate the medium. Cody Romano is a UF public relations senior. His columns appear Thursdays. Cody Romanoopinions@alligator.org

PATRICIA BUTLERAvenue Writer If youre the type who likes half-naked models strutting their stuff down a runway, then keep your calendars open Saturday evening. Gainesville Fashion Week will host a poolside cocktail party with one of the hottest runway shows of the summer. The action will be at The Enclave Apartments, 3000 SW 35th Place. The doors open at 6 p.m., and the show goes from 7-10 p.m. GFW has done swimwear fashion shows during the spring in the past, a summer show, executive producer Albey Coronel said. The show will have 22 models walking down the runway: 13 women and nine men. If youve been to GFW events before, youll be surprised by all the new faces youll see. About two-thirds of the models are new that we recently found in the casting call, Coronel said. Jennifer Cowie, the marketing manager for The Collier Companies, said The Enclave is doing this event to promote its name and show people how great it is to live in a luxury apartment. A partnership with GFW made sense because this is an elite fashion show, Cowie said.

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JULY 18, 2013 SHOP IS OPEN DAILY. OLIVIA LANGDONAvenue WriterWolfgang fashion clothing store off University Avenue has long forgone paper advertising after it saw little return for sales during the year of its establishment in 2007. The shop has decided to launch an online store due to increasing sales generated from strong social media marketing. Matthew Turner, store owner, said social media proves the best way to get people in. Through constant Facebook photo updates, statuses announcing new clothing shipments and 20 percent off offers available via Facebook check in, Wolfgang has joined topselling retailers in brand advocacy through social media marketing. The Wall Street Journal online recently featured a story on this emerging social media marketing technique, which has allowed retailers to build a more intimate relationship with its current and potential buyers. Starting an original brand hashtag on Twitter and Instagram, these retailers are asking the everyday consumer to upload his or her own photo wearing the companys brand. It is the comment card ... brought to life in social media, said Bruce Floyd, UFs social media specialist. Since social media platforms began, people have been sharing their opinions about products. Those opinions can manifest itself in words in images, Floyd said. Now the opportunity is apparent for a clothing company or a designer. Customers take photos of themselves in the dressing room or wearing the brands clothes and tag the Wolfgang with the photo, which then appears in the clothing stores tagged pictures. It encourages people to be excited about something they get from here, Turner said. Rather than displaying models sporting a companys apparel, social media is allowing people to post, hashtag and upload personal photos simply because they are happy with the retailers product. According to Floyd, this allows all businesses to essentially crowdsource content that they are not even asking for. Retailers are saving money by utilizing social media as a method to advertise through the average person. Floyd said this technique spurs creativity allowing regular people who are fashionistas in their own sense to share with others how This would provide invaluable market research to the business as well. Wolfgang wants to feature user-generated photos once the website establishes its presence in the community.

There is only one feeling when you drink 20 beers and have explosive diarrhea the next morning. Youre not whispering, no regrets as you cling to the toilet; youre whispering, Jesus, take the wheel. Not regretting something is like refusing to admit you were wrong. It makes you look careless and means you probably dont have a lot of responsibilities in life. I can think of a lot of things that would require me to consume a bottle of tequila to wash away the stain of regret. Ariel Barnes Dear Mediocre Advice, Dear Friend, Avoid 9/11 jokes, crying, pretending your dick is a windmill or tucking it in like Buffalo Bill, anything that would make your partner feel like a pedophile and asking, Want to smell something weird? Dear Mediocre Advice, Dear Friend, When it is not socially acceptable to fart, you need to clench those butt cheeks. This may occur when youre talking to your boss or running past someone you actually need to impress, like an in-law. Much like suppressing a sneeze, the fart youre trying to terminate is just going to come back twice as loud. It slowly travels to limbo a place between your ass and your belly button. Just when you think it somehow disappeared like you have the power to make things inside of your body vanish it comes back hard like a rollercoaster on steroids. If youre surrounded by people, you should call out your own fart like calling island in a game of beer pong. If its intentional, then its not as embarrassing; just know that people are still going to laugh. Dear Mediocre Advice, Dear Friend, Cuddling, spooning and all that cute sh-t cant always work out. Its not actually comfortable to hold your partner all night because youre going to wake up feeling like an amputee. If it is impossible to sleep next to your boyfriend, sleep apart. Sleep is valuable as an adult, and if your dick boyfriend is going to act like hes at a party in bed just because he sleeps that way, head to the couch. When the morning comes, return for morning sex, but trust me, not cuddling and sweating on each other all night wont damage your relationship itll probably save it.

THURSDAY, JULY 18, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 11 THE HIPP IS LOCATED AT 25 SE SECOND PLACE. SHANEECE DIXONAvenue WriterDespite the summer being more than halfway over, there is still plenty of time to catch some of the Hippodrome State Theatres best movies and stage productions during Summer B. As somewhat of a landmark in downtown Gainesville, the Hipp productions as well. Nancy, Please, which premiered Friday, focuses on the story of Paul Brawley, a young Ph.D. candidate at Yale University. He moved into an apartment with his girlfriend, Jen, and now he needs to complete his dissertation or risk withdrawal from the doctoral program. However, he left behind something of importance at his old home that stands in the way One thing becomes an obstacle between Paul and this item, though: his ominous ex-roommate, Nancy. I thought Nancy, Please was an excellent thriller that kept me on the edge of my seat, wondering what would happen next, wrote Alisha Kinman, the cinema director for the Hippodrome in an email. Nancy is unusual to been brought to the Hippodrome. Typically, thrillers have not been catered to. Exposing the works of young, new directors, writers and actors/actresses is very important to the Hippodrome. Following in the footsteps of many theatre companies, the Hipp offers its adaptation of the much-loved Broadway production, Avenue Q. Inspired by beloved childrens show Sesame Street, the production addresses various issues associated with the beginnings of adulthood. The characters remark on how their parents and shows like Sesame Street taught them that they are special and can do anything. Taking place in New York City, humans and puppet characters interact with one another as they embark on this adult-themed version of Sesame Street, covering issues such as racism, homosexuality and pornography. I would expect to see some of the funny truths in our society, said Joel Oramas, who plays Trekkie Monster in the Hipps production of the play. Things that people deem as offensive or taken as some sort of taboo its okay to laugh at those things. Avenue Q shows will be playing the rest of this week and until July 28. Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, The Kings of Summer, opening July 26, is another coming-of-age comedy about three teenage friends: Joe, Patrick and the unpredictable Biaggio, who seek to assert their independence and spend their summer building a house in the woods to live far from their parents rules. Over time, their vacation becomes a true test of friendship as each boy learns to appreciate that family is something you cant run away from. Also opening July 26 is the contemporary vampire thriller, Byzantium, directed by Neil Jordan (Interview with the Vampire, The on Eleanor and her guardian, Clara, as they attempt to assimilate into human society and deal with the downsides of eternal life. Clara meets Noel, the lonely owner of a deserted guesthouse, Byzantium. Meanwhile, Eleanor becomes close friends with Frank and tells him a dark secret between her and Clara they were born 200 years ago and travel the world, surviving on human blood.

She said that in past experience, she was not used to someone giving her deadlines for her to balance her work for Lowes while attending UF to pursue studies in ornamental horticulture. My editor had asked me, Can you write an article a week until I get you caught up with the other nine writers in the country? and I said Sure. Because what are you going to say when you have a full opportunity land in your lap? I have a huge stack of schoolwork from UF and I thought, No. This aint going to happen. But Glazer did make Lowes her top priority and said despite some mistakes shes made, it always helped her to have someone else look over her work. She encouraged attendees to get feedback on their work from someone else. Much of what Glazer said was very informative for several audience members, including potential alliance member Terri Regotti. I thought the meeting was great, and I really enjoyed listening to Mary, said Regotti, who likes haps, in what Im working on writing, I need to consider not naming real names. When Glazer is not writing gardening pieces for Lowes, she is working on a medical memoir but enjoys writing about plants, people and nature. For more information on Mary Glazer or the Writers Alliance of Gainesville, visit www.writersalliance.org. 12, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JULY 18, 2013 ALICIA SOLLERAlligator BloggerThe new Kanye West album, Yeezus, is much like the rapper himself: controversial, unpredictable, egotistical, yet admittedly intriguing. Yeezus is beyond much modern day hip-hop and even Wests prior albums. The lyrics and sounds are almost a cacophony an appealing one, if at all possible. Its a little less lyrically cohesive and meaty but a lot more minimalistic. Just take a look at the cover art alone. Its really all Kanye. Completely raw, at times uneasy to listen to, yet always adventurous. But of course, it wouldnt be Kanye if there wasnt any controversy. West took some heat from the American Parkinsons Disease Association when the lyrics from one of the tracks on his new album, On Sight, took on stigmas surrounding Parkinsons disease, most notably through the lines soon as I pull up and park the Benz/we get this b---shaking like Parkinsons. The group deemed the lyrics distasteful and a product of obvious ignorance. Comments from the West camp regarding this ordeal have yet to materialize. Wests new album has also inspired some religious stirrings among critics who deem the title blasphemous as West continues the theme of religion and hip-hop thats pervaded his career. Many though, like associate professor at California State University Long Beach Ebony A. Utley, Ph.D., dont think the album is blasphemous. In fact, she thinks the exact opposite: Oppressed people, including many rappers, have sus, who was misunderstood much like they are, Utley said in her blog post regarding the album. Although a risky metaphor, West juxtaposes himself with Jesus without any less reously reveres. At the end of the day, West answers to no one but himself, which is exactly what Yeezus epitomizes. The album transcends the melodic The College Dropout, and the collaborative power of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Love him or hate him, theres something about this album and even his previous ones that is just pure musical viscera.Kanye Wests Yeezus evokes controversy best of blogs A Freelance Writers Maiden Voyage guides aspiring writers I dont consider myself to be a writer because grammar and punctuation is something I struggle with and does not come naturally to me.Mary GlazerLowes creative ideas online
